Sting Operation Targets Illegal Tobacco Sales To Minors In Central Coast Community

Posted on Thursday, May 8, 2014 3:42pm

A sting operation targeted the illegal sales of tobacco products to minors in one Central Coast city.

Pismo Beach Police, and the San Luis Obispo County Tobacco Control Program used an teen working undercover to try to buy tobacco at a number of locations in the city.  15 of the 17 stores tested refused to sell to the teen.

Retailers who flunk the test are offered a free training course on how to avoid sales of tobacco to minors.
